One of the most comprehensive events for people with disability, seniors, allied health professionals, rehabilitation providers, and interested members of the public, the 2018 ATSA Independent Living Expo will be held in Melbourne at the Melbourne Showground from 16 to 17 May, and for the very first time in Perth at the Claremont Showground from 30 to 31 May.
Held on the exhibition floor, the conference program in 2017 attracted more than 4500 registrations. The 2018 programs will be an excellent opportunity for allied health professionals including occupational therapists and physiotherapists to broaden their practical and theoretical learning. Seats are expected to book out well in advance of the event.
Notable speakers in the 2018 program include Dr Lloyd Walker, NDIS, international guest Barend ter Haar from BES Rehab – Healthcare Innovations, Paul Everett, Jenx, UK, Russ Rolt, Active Controls, USA, Alli Hyde, Linds – Motion Composites, Canada and Amy Bjornson from Sunrise Medical.
The Melbourne program also includes two panels of therapists from OT Victoria providing a unique Q&A session whilst in Perth, the Independent Living Centre WA will provide a number of speakers on each day.
The two programs are available now on the ATSA Independent Living Expo website.
Topics include equipment solutions, animal assisted therapy, smart AT, sexual expression, gait training, seating and positioning, manual versus power chairs and much more.
